Finding states of growth

Being at Stanford for a week surrounded by brilliant people doing impressive work, it’s easy to feel like you’ve learned a lot.

As I came home, I was scared that growth mindset would diminish. I wouldn’t be as engaged in learning since home is not as exciting as an innovation conference. But I learned an important lesson yesterday that you can find growth in many places. For me it was driving a forklift on a tractor and moving branches. It put me out of my comfort zone. I messed up a few times but I got back on and did it again.

I tried something new and learned something new. Maybe for you that looks like cooking a side dish, playing a game or asking more questions.

There are states of growth everywhere. Lean into discomfort and find ways to learn in any situation.
